According to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), the prevalence of obesity in the United States 2015-16 was close to 40% in adults and 19% in youth. It is proven that obesity is associated with serious health risks and can be easily prevented with healthy diet and lifestyle. Weight is directly influenced by calorie consumption and expenditure, so you may want to look closely into your eating habits and lifestyle. You only need to create a 500-calorie deficit a day to lose one pound in a week. So, think of ways to cut down some on food and some by simply increasing your physical activity. Also, making some health-conscious choices might help you making better eating choices throughout the day. Here are some ideas!
- Starting your day with a cup of lukewarm water with some fresh lemon juice drops may fight your hunger cravings
- Regular yoga or any other form of physical activity may give you the power to redefine your relationship with food.
- Pay attention to the nutrition label. Any food 400 or more calories/serving should be your meal replacement.
- Make simple and healthy meal swaps. Brighten up a morning with swapping your typical breakfast with our “Berries for Breakfast”. You can access the full recipe by clicking on the recipe section of the blog
